Ahhh - the 80's!
Over at ScrapCatForum the challenge for January was to scrap a smell or a taste which reminded us of our childhood. I chose a GREAT smell, which I really miss. I get all happy when I think about it and also a tiny bit sad. My layout for this challenge is about my grandparents. My beloved granddad died in Jan. 2002, and I still miss him a lot. I still have my grandmom ... sort of. She's not well, she's tired of life actually and it makes me so sad.
Well, I found an old photo of my grandparents kitchen-window (the photo is taken in the early 80's). And I just knew I would use this photo for my layout about a great smell from my childhood. My grandparents house had a wonderful smell. Always so fresh and clean ... and I loved it!
This was a very fun challenge to do! And here's my result:
Again I chose to scrap 12 x 12 - and this is my 3rd layout in this size. :-) The bird on the photo is my bird, which my granddad gave to me. I had him for 12 years!! I tought him to speak and he loved being outside his cage "talking" to me. He loved sitting on my hand! He was a very cute bird! :-) This LO will be a part of my BOM!
Well, I'm off now. Tomorrow we are travelling to France (to go skiing) together with my brother and SIL. A week of freedom without kids, work or anything like that. Just 4 adults having some fun!!
Have a NICE week! I'll talk to you all soon!
